Proudly 'consider' yourself as a Sabahan if...

  • You feel "obligated" to reach the top of Mount Kinabalu at least once in a lifetime...
  • You know where to get your candles and torch light quickly in the total darkness (due to training by frequent blackouts)
  • You know what "Aramaitiee!!" means...
  • You doubt whether someone's MyKad is real or fake one...
  • You come across a supposedly local person but with a very foreign accent...
  • You cannot vote in an election because someone has voted on behalf of you...
  • You can say and fully understand these words....

tuuuna/ saaaana - (u say these out while pointing with your lips to a certain direction) there, at a distance = d situ, d sana..
kalu (if) = kalau
sa/sia (I) = saya
ko (you) = awak, engkau..
limpas (to pass/walk by) = tumpang lalu (e.g. Sa limpas dulu aaa..)
tapuk (to hide ) = bersembunyi
bida (ugly) = nda cantik, nda kiut gitu.. 
bubut (to chase) = kejar
sakai (ignorant, uncivilized) = nda tau apa2, ketinggalan la lbih kurang...
andang-andang (that's how it is) = memang sudah begitu..
sapak (mix as in cooking) = campur/gaul esp utk masakan
inda/tia (short form of "not", "no") = tidak
wicin (a brand of msg as in "ajinomoto" - a seasoning or food enhancer) = serbuk perasa ler...
